City of Asheville to delay opening of swimming pools and Splasheville

Pools update graphic



The City of Asheville, in partnership with Buncombe County, continues to take proactive steps to keep our community safe and healthy during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.  In support of that effort, the opening of the three City of Asheville pools located at Recreation Park, Malvern Hills Park and Walton Street Park and Splasheville in Pack Square Park will be delayed until at least July 1. The City will continue to monitor conditions and receive guidance from State and local health officials to make a determination regarding opening at that time. 


Information regarding all Parks & Recreation Department programs and park operations can be found on the Asheville Parks & Recreation Facebook page and on the City’s website at
